For a preconfigured kit with made-to-order soul, consider the SJC Providence. This loving tribute to the Providence, Rhode Island music scene is sure to be a hit with todayâ€™s demanding drummers. Whether youâ€™re touring the globe or tracking in the studio, you can count on the Providenceâ€™s USA-handcrafted maple shells, crowned with hand-cut classic 30Â° bearing edges and topped with low-mass hoops and hardware, to deliver a cutting, contoured tone and just the right balance of dryness and sustain. Throwback ripple finishes and brass hardware accents give the Providence a serious dash of old-school cool. Every Providence shell pack comes outfitted with SJCâ€™s iconic shield lugs and badges and a hand-tuned complement of Evans USA drumheads.
Sweetwater is proud to partner with SJC to bring its handcrafted custom-quality shells to our customers. The SJC Providence series is hand built in the USA, in the same Massachusetts factory, by the same expert drum builders, and using the same materials and techniques as SJCâ€™s heirloom drum kits. Preconfigured popular sizing and limited finish options make these kits ready to ship.
SJC Providence shells are outfitted with low-mass hardware to maximize their resonance potential. The 2.3mm triple-flanged steel tom hoops exhibit an open tone and rich sustain â€” as do SJCâ€™s low-profile brackets and mounts, which offer stable positioning without robbing shells of their natural tone.
